Amphenol was the first manufacturer to design an Atex/Zone 2 rated Ethernet connector for the Oil & Petrochemical market. The Amphenol Pcd Atex Field Bus series, which includes Ethernet, RJ11, USB and Ethernet switches, is designed for device group II, category 3G. According to EN60079-15, it may be operated within zone 2 and class I, Div 2, as low power non sparking connectors.
The same features and benefits of Amphenol Pcd’s proven Field Series connectors were mirrored into the design of the Atex/Zone 2 Field Series connectors and compliments Amphenol Pcd Shenzhen’s explosion proof DIN-Rail product.
RJFTVX allows you to use an Ethernet Class D / Cat. 5e connection for 10 BaseT, 100 BaseTx or 1000 BaseTnetworks in ATEX zone 2 environments. With the patented RJStop system you can use a standard RJ45 cordset in a metallic plug which will protect it from shocks, dust and fluids. RJFTVX features the same main characteristics than RJFTV series
With USBFTVX, you can insert a standard USB2.0 cordset into a metallic plug which will protect it from shocks, dust and fluids. This range is fitted to be used in Atex zone 2 environments This metallic plug is connected into a receptacle, using a Tri Start Thread coupling mechanism (MIL-DTL-38999 series III type) with anti-decoupling device for high vibrations. USBFTVX features the same main characteristics than USBFTV series.
RJ11FTVX allows you to use a standard phone RJ11 / RJ12 connection in Atex zone 2 environments. With the patented RJStop® system you can use a standard RJ11 / RJ12 cordset in a metallic plug which will protect it from shocks, dust and fluids.
